Φιλοξενία – Filoksenia: This is the idea of being generous and offering friendship (in a loving way) to a stranger or foreigner. This word does not exist in most other languages and is a big part of Greek Culture and expression.

Για πάρτη μου – Ya Parti Mou: Technically this phrase means “for me” and it is used to mean “treating yourself” well.

Φιλότιμο – Filotimo: This means honor and truth and friendship, and loyalty to one another.

True those can be difficult, but "gia parti mou" is not that difficult. It means "only me/myself/him/you/etc.."

For example:

I kardia sou einai mono gia parti mou - Η καρδιά σου είναι μόνο για πάρτη μου - Your heart is only for me
I agapi mou einai mono gia parti sou - Η αγάπη μου είναι μόνο για πάρτη σου - My love is only for you
Skeftetai mono gia parti tou - Σκεφτέται μόνο για πάρτη του - He only thinks about himself

What lighting a candle means at a Greek church

In Greek church, we light candles and make a prayer. Its one of my favourite traditions. Candles are usually at the front of the church and you usually add a few coins or dollars in the box besides the candles to "pay" for the candles.
